Clothes, Clothes, Clothes

Today I have been consumed with clothes. I have spent the day sorting through clothes, washing clothes, packing up summer clothes, and putting the fall/winter clothes in drawers. Now that I've done this I'm sure that the weather is going to warm up and my girls are going to be wondering where all of the shorts went. I really hope the cool weather is here to stay.

The other issue that I'm having with clothes is my clothes. I am having a serious dilemma. I can't wear any of my maternity pants. All of my maternity pants are the kind with the small waistband, not the full one. Well, I have been wearing them when I go places but as soon as I get home I run to my closet, pull out my black yoga/stretch/I want to be as comfortable as possible pants that I have had for like 4 years now. They are starting to fade and are looking pretty pathetic.

The small waistband on my maternity pants are SO uncomfortable. I was thinking about this the other day, wondering why they are so horrible to wear this pregnancy. I have figured it out. It is hurting my incision from Clairisa. The doctors were in such a hurry to get her out that they had to do a serious emergent C-section, which means that my scar starts a little bit below my belly button and runs about 6 inches down, it was a vertical cut. I don't know why it is irritating it so badly, but it is. Which means that every morning I look in my closet and wonder what I am going to wear. I could just wear my black stretch pants, but I just feel so yucky when I wear them out. I feel like one of those moms that have totally given up on how they look. That sounds really mean I know, but you know what I mean ? (If you are one of those people that wear them out a lot, I'm so sorry, I'm sure they look fabulous on you.) I guess I could just go and buy new stretch pants or full waistband maternity, but it is so much easier and cheaper to just complain to Cory everyday. :) J/K, well kindof.

I bet you look great in them, you just don't think you do! However I know how frustrating it is to wear the same thing over and over. I only have one warm set of pants and I wear them like everyday now that it's cold and it is so sad! I want to wear something cute and fun but I never do because none of it is warm enough! Good luck!

I just got some new maternity pants from Motherhood. They are called secret belly fit (or something similar). I LOVE THEM! They are stretchy jeans with no wasteband at all and a full belly panel (which I don't normally like) but this one is made of some sort of ultra comfy spandex. At least go try some on! They are the most comfortable maternity jeans I have ever had!

I agree with the seceret fit. You can watch craigslist and there are always people trying to sell some. I still wear my cargo style ones and my baby is 5 months old. They really did fit from start to post pregnancy. Good luck

Ahhh, go get at least one pair of cute, comfy pants...you'll feel better. I did the fall/winter clothes thing last week for Mallory....whew, what a chore! I'm sure you're just glad to be done with it.
